Roasted Corn Salsa

from the kitchen of Chef Paul Prudhomme

4 cups

Delicious, smokey salsa you can use as a dip, in tacos or burritos, over over eggs.
3 ears fresh corn, shucked
1 head garlic
1 green bell pepper
2 roma tomatoes
1 teaspoon Chef Paul Prudhomme's Ground Dried Anaheim Magic Chilis
1 teaspoon Chef Paul Prudhomme's Meat Magic®
½ teaspoon Chef Paul Prudhomme's Fajita Magic®
½ teaspoon paprika
½ teaspoon sugar
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon Chef Paul Prudhomme's Ground Dried Cayenne Pepper
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
how to prepare

Place the corn, garlic bulb, bell pepper and tomatoes in a large roasting pan. Roast the vegetables in a 450º oven until they are lightly tinged with brown, about 35 minutes. Turn the vegetables every 10 minutes so that they brown evenly, and remove them if they appear to be getting too dark. Allow the vegetables to cool to room temperature.

Cut the corn kernels off the cobbs. Chop the tomatoes and the bell peppers.  Squeeze the roasted garlic out of the pods and mash on a cutting board.  In large mixing bowl, combine the corn kernels, chopped tomatoes, chopped bell peppers, mashed garlic and the remaining ingredients. Stir until well mixed, then refrigerate until ready to use. Serve cold or at room temperature.
